It is now January 3rd, 1931, and I have been unemployed and homeless for over a year now living on the streets of Chicago. About ten years ago, I started working in a factory that created underarm deodorant. Around a year and a half ago, my wage was decreased. Eventually I was fired. The Great Depression is the cause of this terrible event in my life. The United States government has failed us in this great time of need. So many people are unemployed and cannot afford to buy food. I cannot even remember that last time that I had a full meal. Herbert Hoover has destroyed the American economy and the American dream.
In January 20, 1961 the famous words, “My fellow Americans ask not what your country can do for you- ask what you can do for your country,” were spoken by John F. Kennedy at his inaugural address. Fifty years later we see hunger, suffering, violence, tears, and a life full of sadness that many countries offer their people, but then we also see the many things some countries offer their people. America offers a lot to its people. We are offered a safe environment, access to the latest technology, free public education, some of the best foods, beautiful landscapes, some of the best colleges and universities in the world. There are many people in the world who wish to live in a country like America, for this reason America is considered the land
Every day, every person is faced with a challenge, small conflicts that enable them from moving forward, and each day, each innovative person, finds a way to overcome their obstacles and move forward. If every person, every day, moved passed these obstacles, solved problems and worked together, then we would overcome the conflicts, the feuds, and create resolutions that better every individual in our country’s future.
Riding a roller coaster? Watching horror movies? Killing bugs as a no big deal? Oh, no. Not me. I have never enjoyed the thrill of roller coasters; I am unwilling to watch any violent movies as I know I will have nightmares; and, what if those bugs I killed would chase me down at some point of my life?
Growing up in America as a Chinese immigrant, I was puzzled about my identity for quite some time. Was I Chinese, Chinese American, or a Chinese in America? Never had I thought the arrangements between two or three words can be so controversial and disconcert. My life was an empty canvas, depressed and uncommitted. It was tough to not have the same type of name as most of my peers, it was tough to learn English, and it was tough to live with an absence of a true identity. On that empty canvas, life’s dismal became the artist, and I became a stroke of paint stretched too thin. It took me a long time to realize that I needed to scrap and start anew by moving forward continuously, and finally, I found the palette of my interest and became the artist that defines the dimensions of me.
The history of America can never change but, maybe someday in the future it will. In my vision for America I hope that we can have self-safety, advertisements, and find a cure for cancer. No derives to go through all of that. I want to make an impacted on America and the people in it. I hope one day to change the world.
This video made me very upset, it made me fed up with what is going on in the world. I feel as if I have been lied to which I have been, how we can live in a society where these big food companies can make us fat. No one can do a thing about it because all they have to do is use their power to threaten the opposition into submission. The fact that these companies have such huge stakes in the US government which blows my mind. They have no right to use their big corporate power to be involved in the government and whisper into the ear of those with power. That was only part of what fed me up about all of this, I already knew that sodas were bad and so were diet sodas. I had no idea that we put sugars and fake sugars in everything, to be precise
What’s my view for America that’s a good question what I want for America to be in my eyes is to be a good and powerful economy. We have the ability to do so there is no need for war and violence this world is ours. So why can’t we just protect it what’s mine is yours. What we see now is not what is best for all the people in America the racism and cruelty between the races is crazy. My view is to have the best county I n the world so ever country looks up to us as a inspiration.
Throughout the years millions of people have search for a better life and education for their families, they came to this country full of hope and above all with a lot of dedication to reach the American Dream. My family is a clear example of this situation, I came when I was 5 years old but we came back to Mexico for the reason that my grandmother had cancer. Again we came to find ourselves in very difficult situations such the fact that we do not speak the language and we feel like strangers in another country. At this time is where we began to wondered if the American dream was something that can be reach by us or just an illusion? Finally coming to the conclusion that every dream it is possible.
My vision of America is that the school system would change, things would be more expensive, and the people in poverty will decrease. In the future, America will probably change the academic system. My vision is that they will have made the school days shorter and less homework. Kids go to school 7 hours a day, some kids even have sports practice after school which leaves no time for them to go home and do homework, chores, and have family time. This affects their grades because when they get home they are busy with all their homework and chores, so they probably don’t do their homework. Another thing about education is college. College is really expensive and causes some families to be in debt from loans. In my vision I think college will
The American Dream is known as succeeding in life by working hard and earning your own future, many people believe the American Dream has died and others see the American Dream transforming over time. Bob Marley says in his song, “Zion Train”, “Don’t gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold”. I believe that the American Dream has made our society very materialistic, finding shortcuts to the top, wanting more and more, and forgetting the important things in life. I still believe in the original American Dream of working hard, succeeding in life, but staying humble because that’s how I was raised.
Well let’s start with a previse job, when I lived in New Jersey. I worked for a place called Project Freedom, Inc. has adapted housing for people with disabilities, fund and develop programs to assist people with disabilities. My position was bus driver, but with varies other duties involved, such as scheduling different activities, aiding in their personal care, assist in feeding, helping them with purchases. Now let me tell you about some of our activities.
I had just walked in the door from playing in the enormous yard behind our house, when I suddenly see my mother and father hunched over, whispering. I had accidently gotten dirt all over me, and didn’t want mother to see. I could tell they weren’t discussing something happy, because my mother had worry lines plastered on her forehead. But the telltale sign that something was terribly wrong was that my father’s eyes were as dull as murky water.
Have you ever thought something as silly as finger pulling would be a competitive sport? Well, it is in Austria. Did you also know that in Greece, kids throw their baby teeth on the roof for good luck? Or that children in China are potty trained in the public streets? These bizarre customs are just a few ways that differentiate countries from one another. I’ve always found it interesting how something that is normal to everyday life in the United States would be found strange in another nation, or vise versa. My love for traveling derives from moving to many places at a young age, as I was able to immerse myself in new cultures. A particularly big move in my life was when my family left our home in the Philippines for Houston,Texas; it was
